THE LOW COUNTRIES AT THE CROSSROADS: NETHERLANDISH ARCHITECTURE AS AN EXPORT PRODUCT IN EARLY MODERN EUROPE (1480-1680). Ed. by Konrad Ottenheym and Krista De Jonge. Brepols Publishers, Turnhout, 2013. Architectura Moderna: Architectural Exchanges in Europe, 16th-17th Centuries, 8. 524 pp. with 381 ills. 28 x 22 cm. ISBN 9782503543338 In English.
Publisher's description: This book focuses on the diffusion of architectural inventions from the Low Countries to other parts of Europe from the late fifteenth until the end of the seventeenth century. Multiple pathways connected the architecture of the Low Countries with the world, but a coherent analysis of the phenomenon is still missing. Written by an international team of specialists, the book offers case studies illustrating various mechanisms of transmission, such as the migration of building masters and sculptors who worked as architects abroad, networks of foreign patrons inviting Netherlandish artists, printed models and the role of foreign architects who visited the Low Countries for professional reasons. Its geographical scope is as broad as the period under review and includes all European regions where Netherlandish elements were found: from Spain to Scandinavia and from Scotland to Transylvania.
